“The Tax Authorities will only help regions that make budget cuts in healthcare and education!”

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

This is crossing a “red line”. They are doing exactly the opposite of what we have fought for so long. 

If this statement (ABC, 19 June 2012), attributed to Mr. Beteta, the Secretary of State for Local Government, is true, it is clear that instead of punishing those who have broken the rules and common sense of spending in their respective Autonomous Communities, they are rewarding those who make budget cuts in education and healthcare, the two great pillars of the future. Little does it matter how much and in what they’ve spent money in the past. The only thing that seems to matter is not investing in healthcare and education for the future. 

Beware, because that future is not the one to which the majority of Spaniard aspire.
